Indexer Notes

Originally credited to Battefield, but this art is much more accurate than his. Carlson is credited on Buck Jones by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and he can be recognised by his horses with rather long, narrow tapering heads, and especially his way of drawing the legs of running horses. On panel 2 on page 7 is to notice the outstreched frontlegs of Silver, and his long narrow head. He often draw only one leg streched out in front, and then always as if the upper outline is slightly concave. Almost as if depicting a rocking horse. This leg rendering is very special for Carlson, and can also be found in his many Rocky Lane stories. He drew Buck Jones in about 25 issues of Master Comics.
